Wiki article requirements

The individual assignment consists of writing a Wiki-style article outlining either a project, program or portfolio management tool, concept or theory. The articles will become part of a DTU-Wiki on Advanced Project, Program and Portfolio Management and will serve as a resource to students as well as practitioners in industry and government. The best articles will be included in our ConceptBox at www.doing-projects.org .

Figure 1: Process for Individual Assignment






The primary objective is that the article is relevant to project, program or portfolio management practitioners and can contribute to a growing body of knowledge in the area. All articles should be concise, sharp, insightful, academically sound and relevant to practitioners, and target a length of approximately 3,000 words, excluding annotated bibliography (see below).

Once you have chosen the topic for your article please go to this page: Articles Spring Term 2018 and complete the table following the instructions.


Article Description: Explanation and Illustration of a Method

The focus of a “method article” is on outlining a relevant project, program or portfolio management method (or concept, theory or tool). Examples are:

  • Classic project, program or portfolio management methods, such as: Gantt Charts, Work Breakdown Structures, portfolio graphs, risk management, cost and schedule estimation methods, Key Performance Indicators, stakeholder matrices
  • Key theories relevant to the management of projects, programs or portfolios, such as: theory of constraint, cognitive and decision making biases, communication theory, project management competencies, critical chain theory, or stages of team development.

The articles are expected to adhere to the following structure:

  • Big idea: describe the tool, concept or theory and explain its purpose. The section should reflect the current state of the art on the topic
  • Application: provide guidance on how to use the tool, concept or theory and when it is applicable
  • Limitations: critically reflect on the tool/concept/theory. When possible, substantiate your claims with literature
  • Annotated bibliography: Provide key references (3-10), where a reader can find additional information on the subject. Summarize and outline the relevance of each reference to the topic. (around 100 words per reference). The bibliography is not counted in the suggested 3000 word target length of the article.


Evaluation of Wiki Articles

Please refer to the course handbook regarding the evaluation criteria.


The process for developing the article is outlined in Figure 1: Process for Individual Assignment. There are a number of deliverables for the individual assignment (see class schedule for timing):

  • Abstract of the proposed article
  • Version 1 of article for peer review
  • 2-3 peer reviews of articles written by others
  • Version 2 of article incorporating peer review received for own article
  • Response to peer reviewers outlining how comments were addressed
